New work by Joy Murray and Timothy Allen.

Organized by the artists.

About Joy and Timothy:
Joy Murray and her son Timothy Allen are self-taught Memphis artists. This show will feature their collaborative work on the concept of family trees – the tangled roots and the unique fruits. They will also show their individual work from the past few years.

Joy works in a narrative style and uses text in her paintings. She uses many kinds of paper, watercolor, acrylic, and collage. She explores concepts of transformation, how our age and health direct the changes in our lives, and the intersection of human life and the natural world.

Tim is a freelance filmmaker who travels all over the country. He began to paint to voice his subconscious ideas. He works intuitively with color and form and is often surprised at what he creates. His pieces are finely detailed and often have multiple layers. Both artists find a bit of poetry in their creations.
